dc.description.abstract Dengue is a re-emerging mosquito-borne infectious disease that seriously affects the population all over the world. However, there is no sufficient information on the bibliometric direction of dengue research output globally. Therefore, the main objective of this study is to provide a bibliometric analysis of research publications on “dengue” from 2013 to 2017 based on PubMed Database. The study analyzed the different aspects such as authorship pattern, degree of collaboration, year-wise distribution, language productivity, publication type and geographical distribution of publications on dengue. The research method used in this study was the bibliometric analytical method where the data were analyzed using the bibliometric tool, BibExcel. It was revealed that the majority of publications have been single-authored and the degree of collaboration has been low. Further, it was remarkable that a majority of the contributed research scholars are from United States (36.40%) and England (23.46%). Out of 6095 research publications, the majority (79.05%) of research output has been published as journal articles. In terms of Language, the most used language was English with 96%. Moreover, it was found that the maximum number of publications of year (28.26%) has been published in 2017.
